    So, I guess we will blame ‘certain’ people again for this .

  2. This is a sad day in Bermuda, thankfully no life was lost but we as a community have to do a whole lot better then this, and they just look like their getting younger and younger,the answer is not in how their raised, it’s what they are being influence by and our present state of affairs in this country don’t make it any easier, and many may not agree, but today’s young people are wired totally different from any generation we have ever had to deal with and we need to find a way to bridge the gap and reach them, many of us need to stop preaching sermons and start being a sermon by the way we live.
